Fathers ‘Clued-in’ to God are not ‘Clue-less’

“A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.” ~ Proverbs 15:5

Homer_Simpson_2006

The prevalence of “father-bashing” television shows and movies is not accidental. Rather, it is the intentional work of the devil in the world to mock and denigrate fathers so that it will seem “cool” and even “normal” to ignore “clueless” dads.

Let us all be very careful not to fall into that trap.

God has so designed the family, that the father’s guidance and instruction is critical for the well-being of the children; starting from early childhood and continuing till when the children themselves are old.

It is the father who points the “arrows” (his children) and sends them on their journey (Psalm 127:4-5) through life.  And, it is the good father that uses God’s word to shape the arrows before they are sent.

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord:
 And the fruit of the womb is his reward. 
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; 
 So are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
 They shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
~ Psalm 127:3-5

Archer - Psalm 127:3-5
